As a wear material with near 0% moisture absorption, UHMW-PE is the preferred material for use in bulk handling equipment, conveyor components, chain guides, and wear pads which can all suffer from friction, sticking & abrasion problems. The low coefficient of friction of TIVAR products allow for outstanding wear characteristics and excellent corrosion resistance in many applications - Available in Sheet, Rod, and Tube form.
Made from 100% Virgin Resin TIVAR 1000 is a benchmark performer for engineered polymers. With a unique combination of wear and corrosions resistance, a low-friction surface, high-impact strength, and easy machineability, TIVAR 1000 is perfect for high-wear components.
An excellent general-purpose material, TIVAR 1000 is a cost effective solution of food handling problems. It meets FDA and CFIA guidelines for food processing and handling.
TIVAR ECO is made up partly of reprocessed UHMW-PE and possesses many of the same characteristics as TIVAR 1000. However due to its reprocessed nature, it is not approved for use in food handling applications.
For less demanding applications, TIVAR ECO has a lower price to performance ratio. Allowing you to get long lasting, high-performance parts and stay within budget.
